Can your car Tyre be repaired?
The reason for your puncture will play a role in determining whether repairing your car Tyre is an option or not. Additionally, the earlier you discover the puncture, the better. If you discover the puncture as soon as it occurs your chances of a successful repair are higher than if you discover it after driving for a while.

What are your other options?
Option #1 – Call a tow truck
We don’t really recommend this option. For one, you run the risk of damaging your car’s body kit. Additionally, the waiting time and the cost to get your car home or to the nearest Tyre repair shop is most times not worth it and a lot more than if you had called for Mobile Tyre assistance.
Option #2 – Change the Tyre yourself
If you have the time, the right equipment and the know-how, then this is a good option. However, without the right equipment and the knowledge, you could damage your vehicle or injure yourself.
Option #3 – Get assistance from passers-by
However, if the person assisting you does not have the proper equipment or knowledge about it, they should not attempt to dismantle the wheel from the vehicle. They'll do more bad than good to the vehicle as you might have the risk of dropping the vehicle to the ground and cause more damage, or maybe end up injuring him or you.
Option #4 – Drive to the nearest Tyre shop.
This is a definite no-no. Do not risk yourself and other road users by driving to the nearest Tyre Shop on your flat Tyre, you may ruin your chances of a repair being successful or you might Damage/Warp your rims or even causes an accident. Driving with a Flat Tyre can cause the Tyre to dislodge from the rim. Please try not to do this if not you'll end up paying more than what you actually needed to pay!
